At our Bistro du Vin Tunbridge Wells it's simple, really. Inspired by French home-style cooking with robust earthy dishes, and slow-cooked foods, Bistro du Vin's Gallic influenced menu has an undeniably British flavour.
It's about serving up dishes that rely heavily on fresh and seasonal produce. It's about enjoying moderately priced à la carte dining in a down-to-earth, warm and relaxing setting. All served by attentive and exceptionally knowledgeable waiting staff, happy to explain the dishes, the ingredients, and how our talented Chefs put them together. Always on hand, your Sommelier is also ready to advise, guide, match or recommend the perfect wine.
As for the décor - think natural daylight, reclaimed dark-stained floorboards, restored fireplaces, framed pictures and paintings, soft lighting and comfortable chairs. This is Bistro du Vin. Bistro dining at its heart warming, mouth watering best.
